Mahaicony accident: Huge amount of money stolen from victim
Sixty-four-year-old Ewart Reynolds of Calcutta Mahaicony was employed as a Debt Collector with Courts Guyana in Georgetown and at the time of the horrific accident Wednesday, he was on his way to work after collecting a substantial amount of money from customers.
That money and Reynolds’ personal cash, however, cannot be found as his family mourns his death.
His wife of 40 years, Rubina Reynolds told the News Room that Wednesday was his last day working at the Georgetown location of Courts as he was granted a transfer to the Mahaica branch to be closer to home.
During his tenure at the Georgetown branch, Reynolds resided in Plaisance, East Coast Demerara.
Mrs Reynolds explained that her husband worked earlier in the day in Berbice where he collected a substantial amount of payment from customers and he also had personal cash on him but none of the cash was found at the scene of the horrific crash.
He leaves to mourn his wife and five children.
Reynolds was among five persons who died when the route 50 minibus slammed head-on into a beverage laden truck after suffering a blowout on the Fairfield Mahaicony public road on the East Coast of Demerara.
